Remember La Cafetiere on the rue Mazarine?

Did anyone eat there and love the chicken (poulet diable??) and know how it was made? It was the best and I am afraid it was lost with the restaurant closing around 10 years ago.

  1. Well, I do remember La Cafetière. However, I don't think I ever had the poulet diable. Sad to see beloved places go... just like another favourite of mine Les Trois Marmites located on Rue Mazarine as well (nothing to do with the one with a similar name in the 20th arr.) But that's years back.

    1. Don't know, but was it a Poulet "à la diable" (could mean that it was cooked in a clay pot called a diable)? How did it look? How did it taste?

        If you read French, you can google 'poulet-a-la-diable' with Google France ( and you will come up with tons of recipes (usually most of them pretty similar). Use a translation engine for translation. The recipe(s) doesn't sound all that difficult.

      2. My favorite at Aux Trois Marmites on Mazarine was their Pot-au-Feu with marrow bones. But that was back around 1980. Too bad it's gone.
